The Global Forum on Agricultural Research has released two important documents on Information and Communication Management for Agricultural Research for Development.

– Advocacy by Regional Forums for Improving Information Sharing and Exchange in Agricultural Research for Development
http://www.egfar.org/egfar/website/new/newspage?contentId=2081
This document represents a collaborative effort by the GFAR Secretariat and the Regional Forums to agree on a common policy for advocacy on ICM.

The document details what and how the Regional Forums should advocate and what the role of the GFAR Secretariat should be.

– The ARD Web Ring
http://www.fao.org/docs/eims/upload/242450/The%20ARD%20Web%20Ring_1.pdf
This document describes the idea of a “web ring” of ARD web spaces and proposes an approach based on a distributed architecture.

The Global ARD Web Ring is a “voluntary coalition of web spaces that share information related to agricultural research and innovation for development.” These web spaces make ARD related information sources more accessible through each other.
